There is a little better pic in the link below. Keep in mind it's a glass hood so the mounting will be different. There will also be pics of a different set on a cut steel hood that may help you out.

Cool, thanks. I had checked your profile pics, but not the links in your sig.

Howdy, I'm reviving this thread.

Does your hood close and open perfectly? When I installed mine, it seems that the hood of the jeep is sloped so that the pin is sticking straight up but when the hood closes, the holes in the black things don't line up correctly.

Because of this, I have to leave the pins loose so that I can line them up each time I open and close the hood

I think the bolts were supposed to be installed at an angle such that they are perpendicular to the hood surface. This means that after drilling at an angle you would need a beveled washer to hold the pin to the to flat core support in a solid manner.
And finishing touch would also have a lynch pin tether so it could not be misplaced. And the best install use heat shrink over the wire cable to prevent scratching the paint.

Just cut the rubber boss way down on the bottom of the bumpers so the pin goes in easier. Mine aren't perpendicular & they've been fine for a couple years.
